A baggage handler was caught on camera opening a suitcase and taking out a speaker from the passenger’s luggage. He was spotted by one of the passengers on a Ryanair flight from Ibiza to Madrid, who filmed the entire episode before informing an air steward, Daily Mail reported.
The man in question has confessed to the crime and the stolen speaker has been returned to its owner — a teenager, who was travelling to the Spanish capital with his mother. According to the same report, the baggage handler, who started his job only three days earlier, is now facing trial and is also understood to be fired.
